My forensic philosophy is that authentication and clarification of audio/video media combines art as well as science. The methods that I use require attention to detail and scientific principles, complemented by an appreciation for clarity and aesthetics. My techniques are derived from both a formal education and the application of skills gained by working in many forensics situations.

    3 Reasons Why Video Evidence is Being Analyzed Inaccurately

    3 Reasons Why Video Evidence is Being Analyzed Inaccurately

    HOW DO WE SEE VIDEO EVIDENCE AS A WEAPON? Video evidence is a digital representation of encoded light signals captured by a video camera. Captured and stored data is video evidence later presented in the courtroom. On the other hand, humans process video evidence quite differently. We gather light data without encoding it. We choose […]

    Blindspot Episode 24: Hollywood and Forensic Science

    A Closer Look at the Relationship between Hollywood and Forensic Science

    I sit down with Barry Levy in this podcast episode of Blindspot. Barry is a screenwriter and producer known for his work in popular films, such as Vantage Point, Paranoia, and Wolves of Wall Street. You can explore his filmography further by following this link.  During this interview, Barry and I will dive into the relationship between Hollywood and forensic science. Modern movies and television shows frequently portray a fictional concept of science for the sake of entertainment. As a result, the general public is misled as to the capabilities of forensic experts. With this in mind, Barry addresses how he learned to work and write in the world of Hollywood. And, how viewers of these movies and television shows should approach forensic science and the experts working in the field. Listen to the podcast now and subscribe to receive the latest episodes downloaded to your computer or portable device.

    Settling Into Remote Work During COVID-19

    On Friday, March 23, Primeau Forensics began prepping its team for remote work amid the growing COVID-19 pandemic. Three weeks later, I am sitting in my dining room with a beautiful view of the backyard. Exactly how the company started years ago!  I have become fluent in several technological tools to boost efficiency during my time away from the office. These tools include Microsoft Office, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Clio Grow, and Clio Manage. All of these have given my team the opportunity to stay connected to each other, as well as to our clients.    Following dozens of phone calls with clients and fellow colleagues, I learned that courts are still carrying on business. Many cases have been granted a continuance or postponement. On the other hand, bail and bond hearings are still in process. In fact, I will be testifying via Zoom on two occasions during the month of April.   

    Attorney Nenye Uche and Chicago Trial Cases

    It was during one of these phone calls that I reconnected with an old friend and trial attorney from Chicago, Nenye Uche. Nenye and I have worked on several cases together over the years. I consider him to be one of the most brilliant attorneys I have ever met. He has handled numerous high-profile cases featured in major media outlets such as CNN and The Guardian. And, he was recently named into the 2019 Illinois Super Lawyers Rising Star List. You can explore Nenye’s biography and a long list of professional achievements on his website.  Nenye has an incredible story to tell and I am ecstatic to share it with you on my podcast series, Blindspot. Listen to the podcast now and subscribe to receive the latest episodes downloaded to your computer or portable device.
